Correlation Between the RP Rally, Paul Fest, LPAC & LibertyFest NYCSubmitted by LibertyChat on Mon, 08/20/2012 - 12:06
Long story short…
Few years back I meet with John Tate & Campaign for Liberty about an idea to have a major Liberty event in New York City. I’m basically told, raise $20,000 and then maybe we’ll help.
Fast forward to September 2011. It’s the second installment of LibertyFest NYC, the event I wanted to work with Campaign for Liberty on. Instead C4L has their own event that same week, “LPAC” in Reno.
LibertyFest NYC is a success with over 700 people attending. Later that week Campaign for Liberty’s “LPAC 2011″ starts. Ron Paul & a list of celebrities are speaking. Over 700 people attend. Roughly the same amount.
We (a grassroots team working on LibertyFest NYC) had maybe a tenth of the resources C4L had for LPAC2011, and yet same outcome?
Now imagine if the higher-ups who run C4L had just been willing to work with the “crazy” grassroots. Just imagine the potential, of a major liberty event in New York City, with our skills combined. Could have been epic.
Fast forward to August, 2012. P.A.U.L. Fest organizers (cont.)
